What's Next ?

Dive deep into the subjects no creative person is born feeling comfortable about, but which matter the most to your overall financial success. Join instructor Noah Kleiman for a relentlessly practical look at how artists, musicians, and creative entrepreneurs make money - and how to eventually feel Ok about it.

The ONE SUBJECT artists and musicians struggle with the most is selling their work and deciding how much to charge for it. Secret Knowledge of Pricing & Selling will show attendees how to price work, create effective table displays, ensure people tip when performing for tips, and offer advice on increasing sales. More importantly, this workshop is about discovering for yourself HOW TO FEEL OK about doing what you need to do to make a living from your creative work.

Noah Kleiman from Secret Knowledge will take you on the ride of your life in this classic Secret Knowledge workshop which we haven't offered since 2015.

Buckle up folks, this is not an easy subject (even when it's presented in a funny, warm, and engaging way). We're going stare deep into the heartless, terrifying darkness of capitalism to find some safe footing for musicians, artists, and creative people like us. This trip is going to stretch your comfort zone when it comes to money, value, and what it means to be a good human being who also needs to make a living.

This workshop is easily worth $1000. You'll feel great about paying a suggested $15 donation at the door. Nobody will be turned away.

This workshop is sponsored by a grant from Oregon Arts Commission. It's gonna be rad.

Join us at Rogue Ales Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery - Barrel Room, 928 SE 9th Ave

It's happening in just 5 days 10 hours.
